Re: shutting itself down

Its usually not a fault that you will see unless somethings burnt up. This is solid state electronics and you dont see this stuff go bad. But in the meantime try disconnecting the speakers and see if it still goes into shutdown and at the same time have a dc multimeter attached to the speaker outputs. If the unit comes on and you dont see any DC at all or very very little B+ on both speaker terminal sets then you may have a defective speaker. If you do see dc then thats why the protections comming on so you dont blow out your speakers. If you dont have any equipment or dont have any electronics experience I would then take the unit to a repair person for an estimate. Good Luck

Re: shutting itself down

I have a kenwood VR-305, for no reason it would shut down. Some times it would work fine for a while and some times it would shut down as soon as you would turn it on. I checked websites for trouble shooting and called Kenwood, not much help. It would shut down if you were to flip the speaker jack inputs. I took it apart thinking it had something to do with the speaker jacks. What I found was a cracked solder connection, the location was at the very back and bottom of circuit board unit, which one of the back screws that holds on the speaker jack goes into the back pannel and connects part of the speaker jack to the circuit board to complete the circuit. I resolder the connection and now it works great.

Blinking indicates that the power source has shut itself down because another component has died and it's shorting it. Unless you have experience in electronics it's time to take the receiver to a repair shop.

Have you provided adequate ventilation?
May be your receiver is running hot and when there is loud volume it is obviously getting overloaded. There are no fans inside 674, the only way to provide good ventilation is to keep the top of receiver clear for atleast 6 to 8 inches.

Hope that helps.....

Amp protection mode

Disconnect everything from the amp except the power cord, then power on the amp. If the receiver still shuts down, your problem is inside the case and unless you can perform electronic repair yourself you will probably need to take it in for service. If it does not shut down with nothing connected, power it off, connect one speaker or component and power on again. Repeat the process until the amp shuts down and you may have found the bad speaker or other component.

Power shuts off after 2 or 3 sec.

please remove all speaker from receiver-volume down and test if the receiver shut down it needs to fix in service center-if not insert speaker one by one until you find the bad one-change its cable first and then change speaker itself.

Yamaha Receiver RX-V630 not working (resets itself immediately)

This maybe an easy one. Have you unhooked all the wires going in to the stereo. "SP wires" means you have wires to the speakers are touching and the stereo is shutting down to avoid overloading. Hope this helps...

Blinking Standby

regarding the Pioneer VSX-912 blinking standby light. This is how you reset it; press the "advanced surround" and the " enter" at the same time for about 3 seconds. Make sure you press the ENTER on the reciever (its the one on top next to the small dial) If you press the "ON" instead of "ENTER" it will not work. If an error message comes on and shuts the unit down, just reset it again. This should save you some $$$$. To bad Pioneer did't put this info in the manual.

On and off switch

This is the thermal overload for the amplifier section. unplug unit and check all speaker connections for a crossed wire. After all connections are checked and are in good condition, plug the amp back in and power up. Note: the polarity of the speakers when the wires are plugged in. Use the painted line on the speaker wire as a guide for which one is positive(+) and negative (-). If an amplifier is operated out of phase for too long ( positive and negative reversed), you can damage the amp. A bad speaker coil can cause the overload as well. If it still does it, disconnect all speakers and power it up. If these remedies do not solve it, you amplifier IC is shorted and needs replaced.
